For the red wine cranberry glaze

200g dried cranberries
720ml dry red wine
2 oranges, zested and juiced
225g sugar
1) In a medium saucepan over a medium heat, bring the salt, sugar and 500ml of the water to a boil and simmer until the salt and sugar dissolve.

2) Remove the pan from the heat and add the juniper, sage and chilli flakes. Leave to steep for 5 minutes then pour 1L to 1.25L water and the ice into the brine.

3) When the brine is chilled, submerge the chops into the mixture for at least 6 hours and up to overnight, refrigerated. Remove the pork from the liquid and pat dry.

4) When ready to cook, preheat the oven to 180C/Gas 4. Heat the oil in a medium saute pan over a medium heat and cook the pork until nicely caramelized, about 6 minutes per side.

5) Remove to the oven to cook through completely, about 10 minutes. Leave to rest 5 minutes before slicing and serve with the red cranberry sauce glaze.

Red wine cranberry glaze:
1) Combine all the ingredients into a medium saucepan over a medium heat and bring to a simmer.

2) Reduce the heat to low and cook to reduce the liquid by half.
